GTX medical (GTX), with offices in Eindhoven and Lausanne, is developing a revolutionary new medical therapy aimed at restoring motor function (such as walking, standing) for patients with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). This therapy consists of high-tech class III medical implants, wearable devices and user-friendly software applications.
This therapy is based on electrical stimulation of the spinal cord of which is demonstrated that is promotes recovery of the nervous system; a revolutionary finding! GTX is founded as a spin-off of a research group of the EPFL Technological University in Lausanne, Switzerland.
The EPFL researcher group recently published the results of a successful clinical study, where patients regained the ability to move, stand and walk due to intensive rehabilitation using electrical stimulation. This generated a lot of media attention.
